Primary Scripture

But your iniquities have separated you and your God,
and your sins have hidden his face from you,
so that he will not hear.
For your hands are defiled with blood,
and your fingers with iniquity.
Your lips have spoken lies.
Your tongue mutters wickedness.
No one sues in righteousness,
and no one pleads in truth.
They trust in vanity,
and speak lies.
They conceive mischief,
and give birth to iniquity.

Isaiah 59:2-4

Out of this abundance of wickedness in the heart of this unregenerate people their mouth speaks falsehood. They speak lies pretending to be kind when in truth they intend the greatest mischief. These blasted the reputation of those they hated. They took from them their estates and lives. A false tongue is sharp arrows, and when they could not speak openly against their neighbors, for fear of being disproved, they muttered it secretly- backbiters are called whisperers.
